First published 7th November, 2008

Hoi An is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Vietnam. Famed for its tailors, cobblers and historic buildings, Hoi An boats both a UNESCO World Heritage Centre listing and a splendid range of eateries, cafes and other tourist distractions. Hoi An is also nearby the fascinating Cham ruins at My Son and the jumping off point for diving from Cham Island -- one more could you want in a destination! The following photos were taken in and around Hoi An and complement our newly updated coverage of Hoi An town. Enjoy.

While Hoi An has a decidedly “tourist town” feel to it, you don’t have to cycle far to be back in the rice fields.

  • Hoi An was one of our favorite places in all of SE Asia. We intended to stay for two days and ended up staying for a week!
